It’s not just new smartphones today, as Samsung is all set to launch a very new laptop, the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra. Insider Snoopy Tech believes that the base model, the Galaxy Book will feature a 15.6-inch HD display that will house an Intel Core i5 chip. High-spec models will feature the latest Intel 13th Gen chips; Expect the Galaxy Book 3 Pro, Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360, and Galaxy Book 3 Ultra to be unveiled later today. (To catch up, take a look at our Galaxy Book S review for last year’s release.)

Here’s an overview of what we can expect from the new Samsung Galaxy S23, if the leaked specs can be believed.

Healer: Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for the Galaxy device
Rear cameras: 50 mega pixel camera + 12 mega pixel camera + 10 mega pixel camera
Optical zoom: x3

In many areas, it beats the closest competitor now available, the iPhone 14. For example, the Galaxy S23 could have an additional 50MP camera and as a display refresh twice as fast.

Today’s Samsung Galaxy Unplugged isn’t just about new devices, like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Rumors suggest that Samsung will also unveil the new One UI 5.0, based on Android 13.

The new features of Samsung One UI 5.0 are rumored to include several tweaks and customization options, such as updates to how RAW files are handled, improvements to the weather app, AR features, and selfie options.

It should be noted that with Samsung launching its new S23 line of smartphones, we are likely to see price cuts for last year’s S22 models. Take a look at the latest S22 deals below, and I’ll keep track of them with updates.
